Lords ignore the moat in their eye
I see the Lords have been asking about police officers who are convicted of serious offences but keep their jobs. In the Met., there are currently 15 serving coppers with criminal records, of whom 10 have been convicted of serious traffic convictions such as drink driving. The government should do something about it, was the general view. Meanwhile, those convicted expenses fiddlers, Lord Hanningfield and Lord Taylor of Warwick, continue to be serving members of the House of Lords, receiving their £300 a day attendance allowances.
